Dozens of Palestinians from the village of Al-Jiftlik, north of the occupied West Financial institution metropolis of Jericho within the Jordan Valley area, right now organized a sit-in to protest the Israeli authorities’ chopping off electrical energy within the space for the third day in a row.
In a tent set close to Street 90 close to the village, the protesters raised Palestinian flags and demanded that electrical energy be reconnected to their village.
Since 1967, Israel has been demolishing properties, and stealing land and water of Indigenous Palestinians within the Jordan Valley, de facto annexing many of the space to construct unlawful settlements and confining Palestinians who stay in shrinking enclaves. #SanctionsOnApartheid pic.twitter.com/HVtMEXwfUF

The pinnacle of the Al-Jiftlik village Council, Ahmad Abu Ghanem, advised WAFA that many of the village residents work in agriculture and livestock, and rely primarily on electrical energy for his or her livelihoods.
In line with Ghanem, the realm suffers from deliberate frequent blackouts by the Israeli authorities, which have up to now prompted important monetary losses to native farmers.

Through the years, Israeli occupation authorities have been making an attempt to empty the Jordan Valley, a fertile strip of land that makes up one-third of the realm of the West Financial institution, of its Palestinian communities to make approach for a de facto annexation of the realm to Israel’s sovereignty.
